Want to learn how to make macarons? We've taken the guesswork out of making these patisserie beauties, so you can prepare them at home.

Chicken Kabsa

Considered the national dish of Saudi Arabia, this spiced chicken-and-rice dinner couldn't have a more beautiful presentation—it's served with fried almonds and raisins, parsley sprigs, and a citrusy yogurt sauce.

If preparing this salad ahead of time, add all the ingredients to the vinaigrette with the exception of the spinach, then add the spinach on top and let stand until ready to toss.

Rustic Cherry Tart with Ricotta and Almonds

Macerating cherries with sugar, lemon juice, and a pinch of salt brings out juices and softens the fruit -- which in turn evens out any inconsistencies in firmness. Scatter them over creamy ricotta and a crisp almond pastry crust. Pass any remaining juices for drizzling.

Granola Bark

It's extra-crunchy and protein-packed, thanks to flaxseeds, almonds, pepitas, and the egg white that binds them all together. Just bake it up and break it up into snackable shards for breakfast on the go.
